Measures approximately 14 inches tall, 20 inches in diameter. Each item is handmade and measurements may vary slightly.
As leather is a natural material, color tone and texture may vary slightly from item to item.
- Order your pouf flat, to fill yourself with spare textiles of your own
- Choose "upcycled fill" for a pouf pre-stuffed with clean, unused fabric filler sourced from small businesses who would have sent their scraps to a landfill
- Choose "new fill" for a pouf stuffed with new heavy feather cushions made in compliance with the Responsible Down Standard (RDS)
Like your favorite pillow, the filling may flatten over time. We leave the zipper operational for you to add more fill as needed.
HOW TO FILL YOUR OWN POUF
Moroccan poufs are traditionally filled with straw, animal hair, or unused textiles. We recommend stuffing your own pouf with unused clothing, pillows, blankets, towels, or other textiles. The heavier the fabric, the better, so that the end result is a stiff, solid cushion with a pleasing weight. You can also use new fill like pillow inserts and stuffing purchased from your local crafting store.
Made by our partner, Leather Project, Morocco
In the mountains of North Africa, the Berber artisans of the Leather Project skillfully craft leather scraps from a furniture and upholstery company into smooth bags. This time-honored tradition helps them to earn money that supplements their jobs as subsistence farmers and shepherds. More and more, Berbers are forced to move to the city to look for business jobs, but this artisan group allows them to stay with their families in the mountains and provide for their needs.
Our poufs are made by stay-at-home moms who do their stitching in spare moments to supplement their income while caring for their families. This work preserves their way of life and empowers them with income of their own.
